Comment on What I Hate About Memorizing Scripture by Adeseko E. Aina

Memorizing and references is very important even to the new testament
bible writers and Christ :
Peter in Acts 1:20 made a reference to the book of Psalms when he
says “for it is written in the book of Psalms, let his habitation be
desolate …” Paul also made reference to Isaiah in Acts 28:25,26
when he says :
“saying, go unto this people and say hearing ye shall hear and shall
not understand”
Jesus Christ also made a reference to Daniel in Mattew 24:15 “when ye
therefore shall see the abomination spoken of by Daniel. .. “
therefore, references is very very important especially to the
evangelist in order to make prove of their profession and not to
memorise only
